Soldiers from the Chadian contingent of the Central African Multinational Force (FOMAC) hold their weapons as they patrol in Damara, about 75 km (46 miles) north of Bangui January 2, 2013. Rebels in Central African Republic said they had halted their advance on the capital on Wednesday and agreed to start peace talks, averting a clash with regionally backed troops in the mineral-rich nation.
